pretty fish

I’ve been trying to use one new (or new to me) pattern on each page. This time it was Freda’s new pattern Irma. They look like pretty little fish.


patterns: irma, lealad, and macdee
materials: tangle*a*day calendar, black micron, and pencil

I’ve spent the last couple of weeks working on paperwork, reports, and year-end giving statements for the non-profit I work for. I’m all done now, so I have my more time for tangling. Just a bit more work and I’ll be current in my tangle*a*day calendar.


patterns: metros, quare, and ta-da
materials: tangle*a*day calendar, black micron, white colored pencil, and pencil

I remembered to try Kip’s new tangle pattern and. Very fun.

monotangle fun

Here are a couple more pages from my tangle*a*day calendar. I’m having a lot of fun with the monotangles. I may change it up month by month. Hmmmm. What should I do for February?

a mess of birthdays

My son married into a family with a bazillion people. Lovely people, but there are a bazillion of them and birthdays just keep comin’.

I want to celebrate them all, but I don’t know each person well enough to buy something they might like (plus that is all very cost prohibitive). My solution? 

Chocolate and a creative card. (‘Cause who doesn’t like chocolate?)

Last fall I made a birthday card for my daughter-in-law which I’ve turned into a light template. So for 2018, I print a card, personalize with a name, doodle a bit, and tuck it on a bar of chocolate.

Done and done.

i can do this

I’m playing catch up with my tangle*a*day calendar. It’s rather nice to have a few squares to do each day. A new challenge is always so fun.


patterns: icanthis, ticking, and worms
materials: tangle*a*day calendar, black micron, and pencil

I’m playing with monotangles to start with. I think I will challenge myself to do one new (or new to me) pattern a page.


patterns: freedom, ojo and neuron
